Iranian authorities have banned unmarried women from working in gas fields

From the first glance

"Iranian Oil Minister Massoud Mirkazemi stressed that unmarried women should not work in the Assaluh field," said Piruz Mousavi, deputy director of Pars Special Economic Energy Zone. He did not say what will happen to those women who already work in the company - they will be fired or they will remain in their place.

More than a year and a half ago, Iranian newspapers published the instructions of this company, which required single employees to start a family. “Marriage is one of the criteria for employment,” the instructions said. “We are announcing for the last time that all single men and women must fulfill this important moral and religious duty by September 21st.”

The oil and gas industry has the most unmarried Iranians. Their contact with unmarried girls may violate the strict notions of morality accepted in this country. Sexual intercourse outside of marriage is considered a crime in Iran.
